After leaving school in 1965 I completed an electrical apprenticeship with GPO Telephones. I continued to work for them through their name changes to BT, both locally and Nationally until 1988 when I changed jobs to manage telecommunications projects Internationally from an office in Central London. After nearly 8 years of daily commuting I took voluntary redundancy and left BT in 1995. I returned to college to update all of my electrical skills and later that year set up MG Electrical Services. I was accepted as a qualified electrical company under Part P, with the NICEIC, for domestic electrical work when this was introduced and followed this several years later with full approval for all types of electrical work.
I completed my electrical apprenticeship in 1994 after leaving Montsaye School in Rothwell. I continued in the industry for the next few years but gradually moved into computer cabling. After completing a large IT project for a Northampton firm, they offered me a job within their IT department. 5 years later I moved to a large multi national organisation as Network Manager. This job took me all over the world overseeing IT installations. In 2008 and with my first child on the way, I decided to update my qualifications and join my Dad. More recently, I have completed further training in areas such as CCTV, security alarms and fire protection. I now have two adorable boys, a dog and 6 chickens… never a dull moment!
Andrew Norman – Chief Executive, Rockingham Castle Estate
MG Electrical have been the principal electrical contractor for Rockingham Castle Estates for many years. The service they provide is outstanding. The staff are thorough, punctual, polite and courteous. The work is always carried out to the highest standard with the work place left tidy on completion. They have undertaken major and routine work in every part of the Estate, rewiring much of Rockingham Castle, working in new builds, rewiring cottages as well as routine maintenance. I can’t recommend the company highly enough.

We have worked with MG Electrical for a good couple of years now on projects of varying sizes. We always find Matt and his team to be both knowledgeable and professional at all times. They always suggest the best possible and cost effective way to complete our projects and we are more than confident in the work that they carry out. We would recommend MG Electrical without question.
Ally – Rothwell
I was under a tight deadline when my original electrician let me down badly on our garage conversion. I spoke to Matt at MG Electrical and he came to see me the same day to assess the situation and see what electrical work needed to be carried out and issued a quote the next day. Ben from MG Electrical started that week and got the job finished in time for the deadline AND under difficult circumstances left by previous trades person. Everyone at MG Electrical is professional, friendly and extremely hard working which shows in their workmanship too. Such tidy workers too and left my new conversion spotless. Thank so much to Matt and crew! I would not hesitate to recommend MG Electrical to anyone in need of an electrican.
